You can’t humiliate me….

Humiliatedhumiliates

1 Thessalonians 2:2” but after we had already suffered and been humiliated in Philippi, as you know, we had the boldness in our God to speak to you the gospel of God amid much opposition.”

So, I was very hurt, very deeply hurt and humiliated, when one particular family bluntly, overlooked my numerous number of phone calls and text messages; after all I was trying to help a girl from their family. Now after several days, they came back to me for the same favor that I had earlier offered them so willingly. Do I have to put up a price now? Well, I accepted the girl but the hurt was raw and I kept rummaging over it and I remained aloof from the family. Around this time, I happened to hear an awesome sermon and one particular line came like a missile and struck all over me: “If you are already humble then you cannot be humiliated!” Boy, that was profound! Right word for my disturbed mind! A humbled heart would never be humiliated because it is crucified in Christ! Phew!

However, this maturity has to be developed as you discipline yourself through reading His word diligently, praying and setting aside time to fast. This spiritual exercise demands sacrifice and time. Are you listening? Who has time for ‘such exercises’ anyway, we have all the time for gym, beauty parlours, facebook, whatsup and tons of other social networks but the last dregs is offered to God, no wonder we are furious, violent, proud, immature, short-tempered and crazy. We cannot tolerate an offence, we bark back more fiercely and viciously.

Having said all this, I want to say something important and sum up this message, learn a lesson when you are humiliated, don’t hold a grudge but don’t be foolish either; I have understood much of the salutes is for a favor and not for me at all. Are you hearing me? In the above scripture, though Apostle Paul was humiliated in Philippi that did not deter his anointing, he kept going on in God’s work. Be it in office, college, at home, among friends or at church, wherever you may be mistreated or sidelined, don’t allow that to stagnate you – keep pushing forward more aggressively.

You are too cute……

You are too cute…….cute1

Hey! Women! You are too cute to be neglected!

Be fearless! I love what Serena Williams, the record-breaking tennis star and the world’s highest paid female athlete said, which made a deep impact in me : ”Every time you do, you’re making it little easier for a woman behind.” Phew! Enough is enough! Enough of crying, weeping, mourning, lagging, dragging, sleeping, gossiping, envying, sighing, spying, it’s time to soar high! Stop looking for approval, acceptance, appreciation, endorsement and evaluation from others who do not value who you are! It’s time you know your own value! Are you listening? It has already been declared by God that:” you are fearfully and wonderfully made..” (Psalm 139:14) Say this million times and put the devil who jeers at you under your feet!

Enhance the quality of your life rather than beauty! If you think you can keep ‘somebody’ through ‘outward beauty’ then that would be temporary because if that somebody finds it anywhere else he would stray ; nevertheless, if you have something precious on the ‘inside’ of you, which is rare and unique then you become incomparable. Anybody listening? We would spend more time with God and His Word if only we knew this truth. Men who had affairs outside marriage normally are the ones who had stunning, gorgeous wives, now tell me can beauty keep a man? Never. Don’t be deceived. Sadly today, beauty parlours and gyms are crowded while church pews are empty, no wonder adulterous relationships are mushrooming in all corporate sectors. Caveat! Circulate this article to million people!

Be a ‘head turner’ not through cheap gimmicks but through the quality of your life! turnerI repeat quality! Don’t have the herd mentality but be matchless and exceptional, ha….I love that word exceptional, even if it means hard work, isolation, sacrifice and running the extra mile to get it done. Dear ladies, you are too cute………………….
